Packing & Posting Us Your Flowers
So you’ve made your purchase but how on earth do you pack and post your flowers to us? Well I am going to tell you everything you need to know to ensure the bouquet is packed as safely as possible.
We advise that you send your items Royal Mail Special Delivery (24 hours preferably) via the post or DPD.
We don’t receive Royal Mail delivery on a Saturday at the home studio, so please be sure to select a Saturday DPD service if you happen to be sending them, please do give us prior warning to ensure we are available on the Saturday. Please also email us the tracking number so we can add it to our system and ensure someone is in on Saturday to receive the package. There a few options in terms of sending us your flowers:
- Whole Bouquet: Send the whole bouquet as soon as you've had your wedding. This is the easiest option for most people and allows us to select the best flowers for your items. We only save enough flowers for your order, so it’s important you have secured and added all your items before posting your flowers.
- Portion Bouquet: Sending a portion of the flowers, roughly 1 handful per item. This option is for any other option of letters, hearts, diamonds and cubes.
We don’t advise Myhermes as there have been numerous packages which have been delayed or arrived badly damaged.
You can also Hand Deliver any flowers to our address (this is emailed to you as soon as an order is placed).
The following guidelines show how to easily post us your flowers:
Cut the bottom of the bouquet to allow the flowers to collect some moisture during the travel. For any ribboning which may be wrapped around the base, if you could remove this and include (we could add this into the resin also if you'd like)
Collect some kitchen tissue paper, at least a handful of sheets and dampen this to allow for the flowers to collect some water during travelling. Wrap this around the base of the flowers.
Wrap kitchen foil tightly around the base of the flowers, to ensure no water escapes and travels through to the bud.
Place the base of the flowers in a sandwich bag, close the bag as much as possible.
Pop some Kitchen Tissue around the top of the flowers to protect them and ensure of any water escapes the tissue will collect it. Please don't make this too wet, just damp is totally okay for the journey.
Add the flowers, ideally upright, but if you can’t do this, don’t panic - in a box with dry packing such as newspaper, tissue paper to cushion the flowers in the box. Enough padding so the flowers don’t move around during transit.
Please place “Fragile” on the outer box and post! Add a note in the box including your Order Number & Name so we know the flowers are yours on arrival :)
